Norwich Airport sees return of Guernsey flights

Norwich Airport sees the return of flights to Guernsey this week with the first of five weekly Saturday services for anyone looking for a Channel Island break.

Guernsey’s own airline Aurigny is operating the flights until September 18, marking the return of a summer service that it last operated from Norwich in 2019.

Malcolm Coupar, Commercial Director of Aurigny, said: “Aurigny are delighted to be returning to Norwich airport this weekend with the first of five weekly Saturday flights direct to Guernsey in just 90 minutes.

“The seasonal service has always been popular and gives many the opportunity to visit the beautiful islands of Guernsey, Herm, Sark, Lihou and Alderney, which together make up the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Guernsey provides the safety of home yet the exotic appeal of an overseas location with much to see and explore. We look forward to welcoming aboard our visitors from Norwich and the surrounding areas.”

Richard Pace, Managing Director of Norwich Airport, said: “It’s great to welcome Aurigny back with their flights to Guernsey and to be able to offer passengers another exciting destination from Norwich.

Guernsey and Isle of Man 'air bridge' to start in July

Travel between Guernsey and the Isle of Man will get a whole lot easier in July following a special agreement between the two islands that will allow travel between the two without the need for self-isolation.

The new 'air-bridge' was possible because the governments said the islands had "very similar measures in place for border controls from other locations, and robust testing and contact tracing capabilities". There hasn't been a new case of Coronavirus COVID-19 for "several weeks", and both currently have a 14-day self-isolation period for new arrivals, although Guernsey is due to trial a scheme next month which will allow people out after one week if they test negative.

The new flights will be operated by Guernsey State-owned airline Aurigny, starting in July for an initial six week trial period.

SWISS top poll of short-haul operators

The readers of the UK's Telegraph Newspaper have been sending in their opinions of airlines and the airlines topping the polls may surprise you.

Considering the is a London based British Newspaper you might well have thought British Airways, once the claimed to be The Worlds Favourite Airline, would be in the top ten, if not taking the number one spot. However, that is not the case and the full listings of the airlines making the top ten may very well surprise you.

Looking at European or short-haul services, taking the top slot was SWISS, followed rapidly by Icelandair and tiny little Channel Island's operator Aurigny Air scoped third in the awards, compiled by the Telegraph from the opinions of 90,000 readers! 

Here is the short haul top ten.

1   Swiss
2   Icelandair
3   Aurigny Air
4   Jet2 
5   KLM 
6   Austrian Airlines 
7   Lufthansa 
8   Air Malta
9   Aer Lingus
10 CityJet 

Nick Trend, the Telegraph's travel consumer expert said: "No-frills airlines may continue to expand, but they have yet to win over readers’ hearts. Instead, Swiss - the national carrier for Switzerland -  tops the table."

"Of course, this result is a tribute to that old cliche of 'Swiss efficiency' but there is no doubt that service on board is slick and passenger-focused and it is this which has helped Swiss maintain its distance from the no-frills carriers."

The four airlines are - 

The Italian long-haul airline NEOS, that many outside Italy will never have heard of serves a number of long-haul routes from Milan, Rome, Verona and Bologna.

The Bailiwick of Guernsey’s state airline Aurigny has also signed up to easyjets new sales avenue website.

Business Class French carrier La Compagnie flies between Paris and New York.

Corsair is the fourth of this batch of airlines to join Worldwide by easyjet and they operate flights to destinations across Africa, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean.
